Seems Mr Xray has a bit of a temper. not only have rode Southern AZ, I keep a bike there . well tough guy, want to see a much rougher, rockery Dez? go north, WA state. On your baja trip? you'll do well to take some advice. get some hard parts under that "soft" jacket, wether a pressure suit or a C/B rotector. nah forget it, your a tough guy. The Field Shear is armored, but I will be wearing a pressure suit as well, think I mentioned that. WA state huh? I was in the Stumpjumpers in the early 80's, as a teenager. I still have family there. Yah, I've ridden in WA. You know, you guys are pretty funny. I like the tough guy comments. Especially since my entire point is that a POS plastic chest protector is not enough protection.
